Each Kit contains just the right amount of materials and are complete right down to the screws, gaskets and instructions. Everything you need to deal with the service all in one box.
Inspect for corrosion and treat the spar areas behind the Fuel Tanks
- Replace fuel/vent lines that are now very old and brittle.
Most Pipers have never had their tanks off. Unchecked spar corrosion and deteriorating Fuel Hoses present significant safety and longevity problems. Let alone loss of investment.
For those of you that do not have access to a Pneumatic Screw Removal Tool Kit. We have one available from Aircraft Tool Supply. This Kit is very helpful for those stubborn tank screws. The last thing you want to do is strip the head on one of these screws as this will make removing a fuel tank a miserable job. You need access to a Pneumatic Rivet Gun to use this Kit.
Piper Mandatory Servie Bulletin (MSB1006) should be complied with every 7 years
NO FAA Form 8130-3 will be included. If any HOSES require FAA Form 8130-3 - call/e-mail for quote.
